  • Nursery/Enrichment Classes?

    Have been searching through the forum and I don't think this topic was being discussed before.....any nursery, enrichment classes/preschools that's worth a rave or schools that we should never send our precious to?

      For programs fopr babies (not pre-school, I'l think about preschool later on), I'm also keen on Kindermusik, The little gym, growing up gifted and Julia Gabriel playnest! Not that I'm gonna sign up for all of course, but I'll want to try out some of these schools as I've heard plenty of raves about them

                i just watched the video for the kindermusic class for newborn to 18 mths. so funny there was this kid running all over while the rest were mostly babies sitting with their parents

                anyway i saw another listing in young parents - gymboree, also supposed to have music and play. anyone heard anything about this?

                need to go for playgroup so that she can learn to socialise, right now it's just the two of us staring at each other, can get unhealthy

                  I saw the gymboree before, was quite interested as they have program for newborn onwards. But I balked at the price, for trial class of 45 minutes, it's $34. The subsequent sessions are $38 for non-members and $30 for members. Think membership costs $50.

                  Quite pricey as I was thinking of taking baby there once or twice a week. The lady said they change the activities every two weeks.

                    my daughter has been attending swimming classes at aquaducks (since 6 mths old) http://www.aquaducks.com.sg/ and enrichment class at Growing Up Gifted (since 10 mths old) http://www.gugifted.com/gift/index.htm

                    prior to signing her up at GUG, we went for trials at kindermusik, baby jumper gym, gymboree and little gym. but she seemed to like GUG best. go for the trial classes before committing.

                        littlelambie, I keep hearing that The little gym is way better than Gymboree, but The little gym charges ard $40 per class (thereabouts, if you add in registration/membership fees). I'll be signing my girl up for trial classes at both places when she is older, and see how they compare.

                          mango, I find their teacher to children ratio is too big at The Little Gym. Its 2 teachers to 15 children+15 parents, so its gonna be quite chaotic during the class and the room is not exactly that big. And yes, their fees are quite ex. I might just go for their trial class and see how....but overall I'm not very impressed by them.

                            Hello

                            I am new on this board. I have 2 young kids and would like to join in the discussion here.

                            Have you heard of Kids Loft? It was at Holland V conducted by a lady named Lavina. When my boy was about 20 mths, I sent him there for Sat playgroup. That was his first exposure to group activity and at first, he kept running around. Later, he learnt to settle down a bit. If I don't remember wrongly, it was about $280 for 10 sessions.

                            Maybe other mamas can confirm whether they are still at Holland V.

                              Moo, i'll be going down tom to GUG for son's trial class. Planning to sign him on for the 2days a week class, morning session till he's 18 months before i switch him to Genevieve's montessori. Which class are u in?

                              To moms who are interested, Rhythm In Me (RIM) is a pretty good school too. My elder son loves it there Check them out at http://www.rhythminme.com/

                              Also, there are also quite many arts and crafts school available for tots 3 yrs old and above. I do find them quite beneficial.. Realised that most of the moms here have kids below 3 though. Those who are interested, PM me for contact..

                              Interested in right brain training? Try Shicida or ECEC at Delphi Orchard. Heard that ECEC is a better choice though but it's for 2 and above.

                              I've heard that Little Gym is better than Gymboree too. Not sure how true that is bcoz i've only attended Little Gym but not Gymboree. For gymboree, i've only attended their Gymboree Arts class.. Overall, i like Little Gym but it's simply too pricey. With other classes my kids are in, this is something i feel they can do without but if the price is not that high, i will certainly consider it.

                              There's another new gym place, above RIM which looks interesting and really fun esp the equipments which i haven't seen before in other Gyms. Check them out at http://www.jwtkids-singapore.com. They offer a free trial class which i'll be going on Sat. Will let u moms know if it's good..
